Over the last few months, I’ve had the pleasure of writing a few blog posts covering how to build some simple components with Tailwind CSS. While practicing building components is always a great start, there’s nothing quite like using a new framework in a real project to get a feel for what it’s like to use.

Fortunately, I’ve been able to use Tailwind in two projects now, one for work and the other on the side. In this post, I’ll cover some of my takeaways about what worked well, what didn’t, and everything in between:

  • 1. My Development Speed Has Increased 3x
  • 2. My Component Classes Are Better
  • 3. If I’m Going To Nitpick, The Height Utility Defaults Annoy Me
  • 4. Have It Your Way: Customize Anything
  • 5. The Community Rocks
